well i'm overcaffeinated both hands on a coffee cup i'm praying for a girl who would've waited and on a morning after read a longer chapter open the blinds and let the light in cause i saw your beauty in the dark felt your beating heart the one you say is always changing now i'm climbing your steps well dressed in second guesses and explanations cause i wanna see every corner of this big world i want to get day drunk with a cute girl i want to kiss your forehead and read your palms i want to do it over and over again like a repeating song you love
2.
with all the questions i face and days that i can't get back how would you solve the problem? how would your heart react? your room's spinning circles and you're laying down there's boredom in your bloodstream and smoke in your mouth remember when you gave a shit? remember when you were a good kid? now you're thinking out loud you can't calm down pining for what you can't get back now cause it's too late to dig that grave to change your name and stay the same now the day's a tall drink sunlight in my eyes i got a friend beside me we're gonna let it ride yeah this crystal city could shatter like glass why you crying baby? swallowed in the black remember when i gave a shit? remember when i was a good kid? with a coffee pot grin i'll atone for my sins cheap diner booth and neon light carving my name in the table having the time of my life just twisting a knife

Woke You 02:20
baby you were lovely when i woke you in the morning but you'd probably be embarrassed about it you said that you were dreaming of a picture i was painting of a room where we could always be tangled in the blankets every angle there was sweetness and i wanted to crawl in and whisper to you truly how i love you absolutely yeah you feel just like my life beginning yeah girl i'm just so thankful from your forehead to your ankles you're a perfect song that i never wrote so i'll do all in my power with every precious hour to give you all that life can hold
4.
hey darling now that we've parted draw a line back to where it started you sharpshooter, arrow-hearted and i was your easy target where do you run to when it's all gone? who is your lover? a busted lip, a broken nose in my hands the good fight don't always go as it's planned but i know you're happy somewhere just not sure if i'll ever get there yeah where do you run to when it's all gone? who is your lover? do you remember all those nights when your heart was breaking down? i cared, i was always there to hear you out so where do you run to when it's all gone? who is your lover?
5.
my tongue's got a stutter and my heart's got a stammer across the room i'm always so quietly enamored but my roommate takes care of me when i stumble home it's stormin' out my window now i've got nowhere to go my friends are stitchin' up my clothes and she's got a new boyfriend i wonder what her mother thinks and what she does on the weekends once in every while my mind will take me back there see you dancing in that sweatshirt and your purple underwear the last time that we spoke i was laying on the carpet my thoughts drifted away back to that familiar darkness where i dream about your voice hell, you'll always be my favorite thing "baby, why can't you see it? this keeps happening." well it seems i've come to like these blues however long they last yeah i guess that you've become my muse i'm sorry i didn't ask i hope you have good memories nothing too bad the spoonin', the music, and the distance that held us back
6.
Thunderstorm 02:32
i took the river parkway to the county and a calmer state of mind it's quiet in the kitchen now but i remember the time my grandfather sang old army songs while his brain was going bad and i told him i was talking again with that girl i wish i had now he's a folded flag on a piano lid in a living room where i played as a kid and i think of him, like i think of her, every day but across the table jeramiah looked at me straight in the face he said "you can't get stuck, no you can't stay in that negative space." so i'm living and i'm learning let the layers burn away and i'll meet you on a park bench after months of rain i just wish the thunderstorm stayed overhead a little longer i want to get pushed around yeah tonight i'm feeling darker
7.
what do i do for you sweetie? love ain't true so stop believing in me come and go plans, not making all the joy that high you're chasing yeah what do i do for you sweetie? love ain't true so stop believing in me but you will come up like the goddamn truth yeah what do i do for you sweetie? love ain't true so stop believing in me
8.
so what do you think if you think anything at all? cause i'm laying here just feeling pitiful cause you ran back to that same old place i am hoping for the better baby it has changed yeah i got a feeling you're working through it true love's gonna last through it so what did you lose if you lost anything at all? just a look or a kiss i gave you in the hall well that's all over baby dead and gone still you're my favorite thing, girl all along and i got a feeling you're working through it true love's gonna last through it when life keeps letting you down and i can't spend the night things may turn around i'm hoping that they might yeah i got a feeling you're working through it true love's gonna last through it yeah that's how we all gotta do it
9.
loves the moving and the singing troubled heart got tunnel vision my libra love can't balance out i heard you're leaving town loves the dancing and the swaying thunder only when it's raining my libra love don't know how to act truth gets buried in the past but i recall the snow and that coffee shop glow now it's the same words that i write when the lightning hits you twice my libra love won't level out and finally put the pen down cause when we met in every past life i tried to tell you you were ahead of your time i wonder if you still remember the sidewalks and the weather when i had a look in my eye that i only get once and a while yeah i had a look in my eye that i only get once and a while and i'd leave these songs in the dirt and hide gas money, folded in your purse cause baby, it's a long way i know now that baby it's a long way
10.
a diamond in the desert a feather in the sky who do you wanna be when you close your eyes? an old picture in dresser a new lover at your feet what fills up your mind before you fall asleep? a diamond in the desert a feather in the sky where do you wanna be when you close your eyes? a diamond in the desert a dreamer on the coast let yourself surrender to whereever life will go
